    Mason Jar Bee Super

    @Latestarter What you say about AHBs is pretty interesting I personally don't enjoy working with them due to the fact of my personal experience and because I don't believe they have as many benefits as working with Italian bees. From what I know about honey bee venom is quite little but I do...

    What @King recommends is an ideal method to raising any type of animal naturally I believe it's an idea I could consider when I grow older and have my own land, right now my bees are in a rented land and I plan having my rabbits in my backyard.

    Mason Jar Bee Super

    @Latestarter It is a challenge specially when my veil had a hole in it, got stung by 20 bees the worst part was they were an experimental breed that had African genes, but I'm ok and enjoying beekeeping as much as possible. If I'm allergic to brood maybe other people will be and what I want is...

    Mason Jar Bee Super

    @Maggiesdad I've eaten brood and it has caused an allergic reaction on me because I'm allergic to bee stings so I don't think it can be a good idea, I can eat honey normally but react to brood and bee stings. Thanks to that experience is why I reckon selling honey jars with honey comb it it...

    @alsea1 On what I have researched I believe Rabbits can eat whatever their mother has been eating so what I plan to do is start changing the mothers feed and when she has been used to the fodder I will breed her and continue giving fodder to all my rabbits. @mysunwolf Is pasture forage the same...

    @King Your car analogy is pretty true but something to take into account is that food companies look for cost effectiveness when they produce feed,maybe GMO are cheaper to use and may be fitting all the nutritional needs for rabbits but it's not what I want to be eating. What I want to know is...

    Mason Jar Bee Super

    I haven't seen any comb honey where I live and I was thinking in the comb in a jar method so it could be a somewhat introduction of the topic in the market. I was thinking in farmers markets and places like that to introduce it. All of this new idea because I was thinking in a Tequila that has a...

    Thanks I will take all your wonderful tips in mind, I was thinking in selling Honey jars like the first picture.Nectar flow is seasonal where I have my bees because it is a cold climate and we have dry season and wet season only, on other parts of Colombia the climate is a bit warmer and the...

    @King So what you recommend is that I buy pellets for my Rabbits? I was thinking my Barley Fodder idea could be a natural way of feeding them and also I really know what's going into their body and subsequently knowing what's going into mine and my family's.

    @Latestarter Thank you for all your advice on a new way to extract honey from my hives and have a little bit more income due to comb honey. :thumbsup I will still wait if anyone has seen, applied or knows about the mason jar idea because it may be better for my costumers due to the fact that...

    Nice I've never tried extracting comb honey and it sounds pretty interesting, a couple of questions: Why can't the comb with foundation be extracted? How long can it take approximately for a beehive to produce the comb?

    Mason Jar Bee Super

    I have 12 hives and I am planning in expanding to 20 but I was thinking in the mason jar idea so I could get some more income for selling the jars with comb honey instead of selling the jars just with honey, the idea you gave me is so I could produce comb honey from the supers I already have?

    Mason Jar Bee Super

    Hi, I've recently seen on the internet some Mason Jar Supers and I would like the opinion of someone that knows about bees before I try to make the Super and try it out on my bees, is it worth it? How would bees do in a habitat like that? Any comments or suggestions?
